We are a parkrun practice!
In linking with both Ashton Court and Eastville parkruns and certified by the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP), we are delighted that Monks Park Surgery has become a ‘ parkrun practice’.

The aim of becoming a ‘parkrun practice’ is to help improve the health and wellbeing of both patients and staff. parkrun say that taking part can benefit health and wellbeing through increased physical activity, skill development, friendships and socialisation, mutual support and personal empowerment. The events are all run by volunteers and studies have shown that volunteering itself can decrease rates of depression, reduce social isolation and improve self-esteem.
  
What is parkrun?
parkrun is a free, weekly, 5km timed run, taking place in many locations around the UK every Saturday morning. They are open to everyone, free, and are safe and easy to take part in.

These events take place in pleasant parkland surroundings and encourage people of every ability to take part; you do not have to be a runner to take part; you can walk and you can take along dogs, children and pushchairs. So, from those taking their first steps in running to Olympians; from juniors to those with more experience; everyone is welcome. You can walk, jog, run or even volunteer to help at the event. We will be actively encouraging our patients to participate.
